  1. I disagree with the last statment. I’m tired of doing all the work, being so above board, so careful of debt collection, so carefull of clients who try like heck to screws in effect I’m tired of being held to a higher standard when the entire world views as lower than used car salesmen. It makes no difference what we do as far as rules, I say we give them what they give us. The free market, charge as much as the market will bear, report deadbeat clients to the collection agency and generally do what the entire business world does.

    I say we have a duty not to lie, cheat or steal and that is what the rules should reflect.

  2. Hey JJ, you sound very discouraged about the practice of law. I’m sorry to hear that. My guess is that you’re a solo practitioner… I wonder if you’ve considered partnering with another solo, or finding a mentor to help you with the business side of the practice of law, especially getting paid. Good luck and hang in there.
